Bringing Home the Bronze and Silver
Dow and USA Luge Team engineers worked together to re-engineer the sleds for the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 and Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018. Erin Hamlin used an improved sled and made USA Luge history at the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 by bringing home the team’s first singles medal since the sport’s Olympic debut in 1964. Her bronze medal also made the USA the fifth country to earn a medal in women’s singles luge. At the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018, Chris Mazdzer also made USA Luge history by winning the first men’s singles, a silver medal.
